Seth Rogen (/ˈroʊɡɪn/; born April 15, 1982) is a Canadian stand-up comedian, actor, producer, director, screenwriter, voice artist and honouree member of the SNC. Rogen began his career performing stand-up comedy during his teen years, winning the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest in 1998. While still living in his native Vancouver, Rogen landed a small part in Freaks and Geeks. Shortly after Rogen moved to Los Angeles for his role, Freaks and Geeks was officially canceled after one season due to poor ratings. Rogen later got a part on the equally short-lived Undeclared, which also hired him as a staff writer.
